TIPS FOR CREATING A SPINE POEM

Check out examples of spine poems.

Get to a place with plenty of books. A library works nicely.

Start looking at titles, and see what strikes you. Arrange and rearrange in your head. The best part of this type of poetry is the fact that you don’t know where you’ll end up.

Have a pencil and paper with you to write down titles that stand out – you can refer back to them later.

Don’t be afraid to use the library catalog to look up titles with specific words or phrases that fit.
